better for them. >> but that is a tough sell with middle class voters who believe romney's economic policies only benefit the rich. is it time for romney 4.0? so, i dug in to this quinnipiac poll and a few things that were interesting and struck me. first of all, there's so many people have said this election is about the economy. and it is about the economy. but i would put a finer truth comb on that. i think it's about the future of middle class and going back to those numbers that we just had in the quinnipiac poll, they asked people, who's -- obama and romney, who are they going to benefit, who are the policies going to benefit? you can see there 58% they have this reversed here. should be 58% say that mitt romney's policies benefit the rich. and obama's are much more evenly split. and very few people think that romney's policies are going to benefit the middle class. so this is a problem for him. you see in that ad where he talks about my policies, president obama and i both care about the middle class and the poor. that is not what people on the ground believe and i think that

the outlandishly large margin that mitt romney needs to be with white working-class voters. he is not anywhere close. that is the bottom line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney or a margin of 22 points. nowhere do you see the outside margin that he really needs to win the election. given how he appears to be holding support and then some of college graduate voters so that is where we are now in the national picture. as we know, these elections that we choose to have in the united states are not decided by the popular vote. instead, we have the electoral votes where everybody gets another vote for the states that allocate their electrical votes will so that gives us outcomes in a number of battleground states. this is as we laid it out in the first case. we have six states in the midwest area, ohio, michigan, and ohio, states in the southwest, colorado, new mexico and nevada. virginia and florida in the south. all of the states are pretty different. the six states in the midwest are much more heavy and have a slow level of demographic change and
. working class. the key to virginia for romney will have been to widen the margin with the gop candidate among white working-class voters. mccain carry them by over 30 points in 2008. so has run the at this point, but it is basically about the same margin, 31, 32 points as mccain got in 2008. to add to that we see this burgeoning white college graduate group that obama lost by about 11 points in 2008. he is facing the most have seen, basically about even among white college graduates voters of virginia. that makes it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been a state that has been fairly close. obama looks like he has. three or four-point lead on average. quite a lot of demographic change in the state. minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points, and white working-class voters have gone down by three percentage points. again, it does not appear that romney is able to turn that demographic tide in his favor. he's not doing much better among white working-class voters of all according to the polls i've seen. he made
they are sponsors mitt romney with, who is the avatar, the sponsor of his class. >> i like that word, that he's the avatar of his class. i think that's perfectly fitting. let's talk about the dangers of this kind of in come and equality. as you point out the numbers are similar to what happened before the great depression. why would income and equality which mitt rom claims brings us freedom lead to an economic crash? >> because the great vast middle class and everybody who aspires to become middle class don't have enough money to keep the economy going on their own. the people at the very top where the money accumulates they save. it's impossible. you get $20 billion a year, i don't know how anybody could possibly spend that much. being rich means you basically have everything you want, everything you need, you just accumulate. how do you accumulate? you put into bank accounts in switzerland or you invest around the world or the cayman islands or you gamble and speculate but you are not creating jobs. that's the thing that mitt romney keeps saying that is fundamentalry wrong. the rich are no
last week, mitt romney's got a new message and that's to tell middle class people as well as the poor that he cares about them. he did it on the stump in ohio today, he also did it in an interview with our nbc colleague ron allen just a few minutes ago. here's mitt romney. >> i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign, as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i've got everybody in my state insured. >> and here's some numbers, larry, that show you why that is mitt romney's message rather than tax cuts. you can't compare in the state of ohio where a new york times cbs poll shows mitt romney down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the economy, 6 in 10 voters, nearly 6 in 10, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt rom
battleground state. this morning in ohio romney is trying to differentiate himself on middle class economic issues. here's what he said within the last 15 minutes. >> do we want four more years with 23 million americans struggling to find a good job? >> no! >> do we want four more years where after the kids coming out of college can find work? >> no! >> do we want four more years where every year the take-home pay goes down? >> reporter: gop strategists are saying there are no easy answers to romney's failure to connect with the strong middle class in ohio. after ohio the next face off will be the first presidential debate on october 3rd. kira klapper, abc7 news. >>> :37 now. >>> we have coastal fog and delays at the airport port. >> about 53 minutes at sfo because of low clouds. good morning. thickest fog up around is -- up in santa rosa, down a little half moon bay to three not as thick as it was yesterday those are the few areas where you may drive through mist this morning. winds fairly calm except oakland southwest at 12, southwest at napa seven northwest at livermore and hayward just
class than believe that mitt romney has such a plan. that's another problem mitt romney has. he had expected that the economy would win the election for him. all he would have to do is go to people and say, i'm not barack obama. i can do a better job. in fact, he needed to do a lot more. obama has laid out specific proposals. he's had a job for months now, but mitt romney has been very vague about his proposals for helping the middle class. >> you know what, this strikes me, just thinking now, listening to cynthia, he seems to are been running this campaign for the last six months as someone who expected the voters would want him. not that he would have to sell himself, his plan, his ideas. that the voters would want him as a white knight, coming in and rescuing the company, that is, the u.s. economy. and he didn't have to do much beyond that. as he's finding out, that's not the way the game plays if you want to be leader of the united states. >> there are chinks in his armor, by the way. he didn't count on the knight from arkansas showing up either, bill clinton. >> sir lancelot. >
of the manner. she says every time around which is the middle class doesn't like romney. battleground politico just released a poll showing mitt romney enjoys a 14-point lead among middle class. and among every single issue the middle class say they agree with mitt romney. and by two to one he has room to grow. people don't know enough about what his policies are. and that ad is very powerful. sets a stark difference between them as i measure, i mitt romney and conservatives measure compassion by growing the economy, creating jobs. not increasing poverty and debt and putting more people on welfare. i love that ad. and -- >> except every single poll that comes out there says the opposite of what mary is saying. that's why this ad is not going to be effective. >> all right. mary, maria, thanks so much for coming into "the situation room." agree to disagree on that one. we'll be right back. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was pre
in pretty much every poll. these are the new ads that are just out. from mitt romney and the obama campaign. the first time romney looks in the camera for one of his commercials. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policy will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion how many people are on welfare. >> romney paid 14% in taxes last year on over 13 million in income. almost all from investments. instead of attackk folks who work for a living shoulden we stand up for them? >> bret: i saw, steve, republicans today saying why is governor romney saying we both care about the middle class? if his case on the stump is president obama is letting down the middle class by not dealindealing with the deficit d debt? >> this will the b the 30th time i said this on the panel. i don't like it when the president says the president is a nice guy in over his head. then you have the romney campaign saying look, president obama is lying about what we've done. he has done this, this, this. chronny capitalist. dissidents in message. rom
. romney's tax plan would raise taxes on low-income americans. it would raise taxes on the middle class. but it would giv aig t breao billionaires. mr. ryan, i'm all for teaching men to fish but you're giving the catch of the day to the wealthy and throwing everyone else overbroad. plat tud slogans, all of that is nice. but tellingan tighten up his belt when he's already been stripped down to his underwear, what could be
this was going to play out. you know, the -- hugo, i want to play a new ad from the romney campaign, too many americans the title of it. mitt romney straight to camera no suit jacket, let's take a look. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> i think that's a strong ad for mitt romney. the question is why he wasn't playing that two or three months ago. >> it is a good ad and you're right. there's a larger dynamic in ohio that actually is true nationally, too, which is you have some economic improvement, you have -- there's a sort of consumer confidence number that came out, highest since february, the housing market that's starting to actually show real upticks nationally and the distressed markets, so it's going to be hard for mitt romney to go around selling the voice of gloom. that's something people don't want to hear. the
that video of romney talking badly about the 47% who pay no income tax. today, from romney, more compassion in a new minute-long tv ad. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: romney's problem is historic, nobody has won the white house without winning ohio, romney sounded optimistic today in an interview with nbc news. >> can you win ohio? >> i'm going to win ohio, in part because i have for support of people in ohio. >> reporter: but the problem, obama is here, too, today, his 29th visit since taking office, and not letting anybody forget that other number, 47%. >> i don't believe we get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as victims who never take responsibility for their lives. >> reporter: the president stopped at campuses, ralliy young supporters. such a crucial day, both men took the stage at almost the same time this afternoon, and almost crossed paths as president obama headed to kent state, and romney to toledo. >> if you're registered, you can start to vo
, i think you've got to say that romney is not resonating with middle class voters, they don't like his business background, don't like his policies. for whatever reason they're not thrilled with obama, it would be ridiculous to say that, but i think the middle class just doesn't like mitt romney. stuart: what would you advise mitt romney to do in the debates one week from now? >> not be super, super aggressive, but being dispassionate and explain in great detail why his prescription would help the economy. i think most people don't get it yet. they don't understand the romney prescription. he has time. i want to emphasize, the race is not over yet. plenty of money, two more unemployment reports to come three presidential debates. he has time, but he has to explain clearly why his plan is better. stuart: i've got one more thing i wish you could explain for me again. again in a poll in ohio out this morning, it gives president obama a 25 point lead amongst women. can you explain it? >> well, you know, object on a lot of social issues, i don't think that ryan helped. ryan and todd aki
romney targets work-class voters in major metropolitan areas. less than a week before early voting begins in ohio where does each candidate stand. bob cusack is the managing editor for the hill. good to see you. which candidate would you like to analyze first you pick. >> president obama, he has the lead in ohio and that has picked up. i don't think that is surprising because last week was the worst week for the mitt romney campaign. can romney still win ohio? yes. he's going to have to change the dynamic a little bit. why is ohio so important, the last eleven presidential elections if you win ohio you win the presidency. that's why these two guys are fighting over the state and down the stretch they are going to be in ohio a lot. arthel: let me jump in with specifics here, bob. as you say we already said the president is visiting two state universities there. he's going after the young voters. they put him over-the-top in 08 with a 51% lead over the ka main palin ticket. certainly the president is not taking the ohio voters for granted. this is his 13th visit here this year. will it be a
working-class voters hit hard by the economy, 55-28 for romney in a recent study from the public religion research institute. so there's a lot of work to be done, and there's a message to say, hey, look, this is not the new normal. do not be satisfied with spending a bunch of tax money to keep this mediocre status quo. romney needs to get on that message. jon: simon, roughly half of all jobs lost have been lost by white men, so how does president obama try to appeal to them? >> well, was i think -- because i think the white men view the economy the way that most voters see it which is they know that things were really bad when president obama came to office, and things have gotten better. i know that not everybody who watches this believes that, but that's the case -- >> a lot of people who don't have jobs don't believe that. >> i know, but things are getting better. there's nobody spiking the football here on the economy, but clearly things are not only getting better from where they were when obama took office, but in the last few months -- [audio difficulty] as you just heard a minute
when only the rich get richer. we succeed when the middle class gets bigger. >> reporter: a new cbs news poll shows ohio voters are listening. the president has opened up a 10 point lead over mitt romney among likely voters in the battleground state. wednesday the president slammed romney's plan to get tough on china. >> when you see these ads he's promising to get tough on china, it feels a lot like that fox saying, un, we need more secure chicken -- you know, we need more secure chicken coops. >> reporter: the new poll also shows a majority of likely voters in ohio, florida and pennsylvania now give president obama an edge when it comes to handling the economy. the economy is governor romney's key issue and in bedford heights, ohio, he worked to convince voters he has the bess plan for getting americans back to work. >> we -- best plan for getting americans back to work. >> we have got to open more trade to get more good jobs for americansen and i'll do that. >> reporter: the presidents -- for americans and i'll do that. >> reporter: the president and groups supporting him have

mitt romney probably needs to be competitive among white working class voters to win this election. he is nowhere close. that is the bottom line and this is true across many poles. might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney or 22 or 23 but nowhere do you see the outside margin that he needs to win the e election given how obama is doing among minority voters and how he appears to be holding support and then some for white college graduate voters so that is where we are in the national picture and as we know these elections we choose to have in the united states are not decided by just the popular vote. that would be a silly thing to do. instead we have this electoral vote system where everybody gets allocated and so on. you know the story. that means the election really comes down to the outcomes of a number of swing or battleground states and this is the 2012 battle ground as we laid it out in three buckets. you have six states in the rust belt midwest area. pennsylvania and ohio and michigan and minnesota and iowa and three in the southwest. nevada and mexico and colorado and th
